    Ironic Considering...

    I Do Okay Though

    I will be the first to admit that I don't like to take very much in the way of meds. I will take antibiotics when necessary and cold medicine if it gets bad, but I try and fight things off naturally. I do pretty well because my immune system is not always at the ready waiting...

    Unless I'm Very Sick, I Won't Take It

    I've had the flu before and refused medicine. My mom used to be able to tell if I was deathly sick if I ASKED for medicine, since it is so unlike me. I get colds but just stock up on Vitamin C. The only thing I DO take medicine for (and I avoid doing so if I can) is for my...

    Never Was the Pill-popper!

    I don't like taking meds, if I don't have to. For example, I suffer from frequent migraine headaches and I have a prescription for it. I am suppose to take one pill, as soon as the migraine starts, and take another one after six hours... if the first one doesn't work. Most times...

    Don't Like the Side Effects

    I take antideprresants at one time or another. I don't like taking them because they always have funky side effects. The last one I took, Cymbalta, made me feel like crap. I felt better before I started taking the darn thing! It had me feeling cold, very jittery, sweaty all the...

    Who Does?

    but we gotta have meds when we need them. I'd rather get injected once and not have to remember taking pills when i'm sick.
